It's true: winter days are short and cold. So, how is it possible that some Mediterranean species such as myrtle, lemon and citrus trees, geraniums, bougainvillea and capers can grow in our gardens? How can we produce one of the best extra virgin olive oils in the world? The answer is easy: the cold weather does not last long! From December until March it is often the driest season of the year.
You can ski in the mountains and there is snow but look at the pictures carefully: you can walk around the lake in light clothing. You can get up late, have a good breakfast, then walk for 3/5 hours in the middle of the day and finally relax and have dinner in good restaurants. The suggested routes are our Sunday walks, beautiful and relaxing. You can walk along the sunny sides of the lake. Prices are low and the restaurants cosy.
